Sju/syv. Both words should definately be allowed here!

Funny. I got an error

Was it on a listening test? I've found that those only allow the exact audio (like kona, sju, jenta)

I think the difference between Tjue and Sju is going to kill me. I just can't get it right.

Tjue (twenty) finish by en "open mouth" french "A" sounds like [chuA] Sju (seven) sounds like more [chu] without "A" at the end. I'm french, this is my only way of distinguish each other :)

We also have tyve and syv. That is really fun. Though where I'm from, we mostly use tjue and syv. Well, I do at least :P

Rbsnh, if you find this difficult you can forget them and use tyve and syv. You say en-og-tyve (in one word), to-og-tyve etc.

I know that reality well, my high school in Brazil has five dictionaries for 1000 students! We can't read well so that doesn't matter much LOL
